The Azure Service Bus team is extremely excited to announce general availability of our Java client library version 1.0.0. This is a huge milestone for us. It allows customers to enjoy a solid Java experience with Azure Service Bus as it comes complete with native functionality.
Want to use the native client to send scheduled messages? No problem. Want to use sessions on Standard and Premium plans to keep your messages in order? Sure thing.
We had a number of organizations and individuals motivating us to get this out the door. Thank you to them for the patience and the push!
Our Java client (Java 8) is also now on par with our .NET Standard client library (.NET Standard 1.3) and if you were to use both you would notice feature parity and full support for interacting with Azure Service Bus.
We have samples for sending and receiving messages from your queues and topics. We also have a sample that allows you to send "BytesMessage" from a Qpid JMS client and receive it with the Java client (we'll be adding more support later for this such as TextMessage).
